Enable PowerUp API

I wanted to created a custom field on Trello board. So, I used below REST API as per Trello documentation."Total"&type=number&pos=bottom&key={key}&token={token}&idModel={boardId}

This throw an error saying power up is not enabled for the board.

So, I tried to enable power up with below API.{boardId}/powerUps?value=customFields&Key={Key}&token={token}

Now I key "invalid key" error. 410 unauthorized error. I am passing key and token in query param. And for all API like board create, card, list everything works fine. But for it doesn't work for power up enable through API. Any suggestion?

@Gaurav Srivastava you don't post the name customFields you need to pass the id of the customFields powerup, you can see my enableCustomFields function in Trellinator here:

Thank you @Iain Dooley If you see the documentation this confuses somewhat.

curl --request POST \ --url '{id}/powerUps?value={value}'

where value can be calendarcardAgingrecapvoting.

@Gaurav Srivastava the only valid values listed for that endpoint are:


I see. Seems that is not valid too.



So, trying with pluginId with this URL{boardId}/boardPlugins?idPlugin={customFieldId}&key={Key}&token={token}. Getting "The requested resource was not found." Seems something is missing my end.

@Gaurav Srivastava well I can tell you with 100% certainty that the function I have written works, so keep trying ;)

You are 100% correct. I gave wrong boardId. My bad. Appreciate your help. :)

Now to be found at line 654, here is a working link.

@Wouter actually the ability to enable power ups through the API was removed recently so if you try you will get an authorisation error.
